The Twilight Sad have shared the full video for their song 'Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting'.
The Scottish band returned in regal fashion earlier in the year, releasing their wonderful full length 'IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME'.
Album highlight 'Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting' immediately stood out, with its corrosive guitar lines intermingling with a pleading, urgent James Graham vocal.
Brendan Smith and Cameron Gleave direct the riveting video, overlaying found footage with some remarkable effects.
“I found an old leather bag at the back of my Grandfather’s cupboard with a collection of super 8 film reels from the late 60’s. When I thought about connecting this with the glitched layers from DLT’s album artwork it felt like we could continue the records themes of distorted and fractured memories, whilst combining old and new formats and blurring the lines between these mediums."
“Filming in an old abandoned swimming pool from the 1920's gave us an opportunity to reflect on past memories, drawing from my Grandfathers original footage but projecting them in the present in an altered state, by using contemporary methods."
Tune in now.
